Make sure your bobbin is in proper and secure, it should click when you put it in. Also try putting a new needle in. Clanking noises are sometimes a bent needle.

I've tried everything but cotton keeps on looping from under the material


Make sure you are using a brand-new needle and that is installed with the flat side facing the correct direction.

Remove the upper thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the thread tension at the midway point between high & low number.

Lower the presser foot, retest the stitch quality on scrap fabric and adjust the upper thread tension until the upper thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric.

Thread on my consew 225 keeps balling the thread on the bottbottom


Sounds like bird nesting. The upper thread accumulates under the fabric creating a series of loops and knots.

First: Install a brand new needle and make sure it is installed facing the correct direction. (A new needle is the least expensive fix for most sewing machine issues.)

Second: Remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Make sure it is threaded correctly (consult the owner's manual).

Third: Pull up the bobbin thread through the fabric and gently hold the thread tails in your left hand while slowly taking the first couple of stitches.

Cotton is loose/looping under material?


Sounds like bird nesting.
The #1 thing is to install a brand new needle (old, worn, nicked, or bent needles can create a lot of havoc).

Remove all the thread from the machine. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning verifying that it is threaded correctly. Make sure the bobbin is loaded and threaded in the bobbin case properly.

When i run a straight stitch, the top of the fabric looks well sewn; the thread on the bottom of the fabric, however, bunches up-it looks nothing like the top stitch.


Is it really the bobbin thread that is bunching under the fabric, or is it really the top thread that is creating loops and "bird nests" under the fabric???

Rethread your upper thread. BEFORE you thread the upper thread, be sure to RAISE the presser foot. This releases the upper thread tension disks so the thread is firmly seated in the tension disk.

If it continues to be a problem, then the upper tension needs to be tightened. Adjust slightly, then test. Repeat until the upper and lower threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

The thread bunches under fabric when sewing on leather


WHEN YOU FIRST THREAD LEAVE THE FOOT UP AND PAY ATTENTION IF YOU ARE GETTING A SNAG WHILE YOU ARE THREADING. IF YOU ARE THEN FIND OUT WHERE THE SNAG IS AND CORRECT IT. NOW, LOWER THE UPPER FOOT PRESSURE. THIS MUST BE LOWER BECAUSE THE FABRIC IS SO MUCH MORE THICK. IF IT IS STILL A PROBLEM TAKE NOTICE IF THE BUNCH IS ON BOTTOM OR ON TOP. MORE ON TOP THEN LOWER TENSION. IF THE BUNCH IS ON BOTTOM THEN TIGHTEN THE TOP. START YOUR TENSION ON TOP WITH THREE. THE BOTTOM NEEDS TO BE CHECKED FOR PROPER TENSION. THE BOBBIN SHOULD JUST HANG FROM YOUR FINGER. IF YOU BOB YOUR FINGER IT SHOULD BEGIN TO EXTEND JUST A SMALL AMOUNT. JUST REMEMBER THE THREAD IS THICKER AND MUST BE ADJUSTED BECAUSE OF THIS.

The lower stitch (under the fabric) is using too much thread


Check everywhere to get lint plugs out of the way and change your needle. Make sure it's in correctly. And, make sure you're threading correctly...don't forget the take-up hook.

The tension is off ?? bottom thread bunches


Sounds like it could be! Probably worth trying to readjust it. Are you using a fine fabric too? That can cause bunching.

M machine stopped working properly. The lower thread is bunching, knotting and the fabric is being pulled into the bobbin compartment. The machine also makes loud noise. thanks


bunching lower thread is actually the upper thread not having enough tension due to mis-threading or wrong tension setting

Pulling on top thread bunches my fabric


Either the top tension is too tight or the lower tension is too loose.
